The home side dominated for much of the game but a 26th minute goal from a Saul Niguez header, left them with an uphill task, due to the away goals rule.

As they chased they game, requiring three goals to go through, Jamie Vardy’s strike on the hour, was no more than an consolation goal.

Considering the poor start to the season the Leicester club endured, changing managers not so long ago, the club can be proud of reaching the quarter-final stages of Europe’s elite tournament.
